(Daniel Padilla sings Grow Old With You – video courtesy of mychosdotcom)
There are a number of OPM (Original Pilipino Music) songs that I love and would sing whenever I feel like it or when in a karaoke session with friends. Having moved away from the Philippines, I am not really familiar with the new songs anymore but I still enjoy listening to remakes of my favorite English love songs that I would chance upon Youtube.
Today I was lucky to find a freshly uploaded teaser video of Daniel Padilla, a 17-year-old multi-talented Filipino artist, singing an Adam Sandler original from the movie “The Wedding Singer,” I Want to Grow Old with You.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I think this is his second remake, the first one being “Hinahanap hanap kita” originally sung by one of my favorite 90’s band, Rivermaya.
Daniel did great on this, quite fresh and coming from a 17-year-old you’d feel the sincerity in the words as he sing. (Would have wanted to see his really expressive eyes behind those shades but still, he’s looking cute as ever.)
Wanna sing along? Lyrics below. ^_^
I Want to Grow Old with You
(written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy, originally performed by Adam Sandler)
I wanna make you smile whenever you’re sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
Oh all I wanna do is grow old with you
I’ll get your medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
Oh it could be so nice, growing old with you
I’ll miss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
Even let ya hold the remote control
(So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you’ve had too much to drink)
I could be the man who grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you
Padilla, who speaks like his uncle, actor Robin Padilla, has a very different and pleasant singing voice (good looks not surprising). He is the son of actor Rommel Padilla with actress Karla Estrada.
